Strolling along: CCF Director & Yorgen Fenech share prison walks

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

The Director of the Corradino Correctional Facility, CCF, Alexander Dalli, has been seen, several times, walking around the prison with “privileged inmates, namely with Yorgen Fenech,” sources told Newsbook.com.mt.

This newsroom has sent questions to Alexander Dalli but until the time of writing, the questions remained unanswered.

Yorgen Fenech, the owner of the Dubai company 17 Black is being accused of complicity in masterminding the assassination of investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, back in 2017.

Yorgen Fenech was arressed in November last year and has been imprisoned since the 30th of November 2019.

This newroom is also informed that there was a time when Fenech’s clothes were washed by female inmates. It is a common procedure that inmates wash their own clothes or else they transfer them to their relatives when they visit.

Also, before Yorgen Fenech was transferred in a division he was in a three room building, known as single rooms and only his relatives were allowed to enter inorder to visit Fenech.

Last month informed sources spoke to Newsbook.com.mt, accusing the director of prisons Alex Dalli of playing favourites at the Corradino Correctional Facility, stating that the retired AFM colonel even personally took three ‘privileged’ inmates out for a swim at Rinella.

Relatives of inmates at the CCF had told the newsroom that a number of inmates were considered to be in Dalli’s inner circle, and that they would help him with prison maintenance. On one occasion, it is understood that Dalli drove three inmates to Rinella for a swim, with the prison director himself stripping down to his underwear and jumping in.

Such behaviour is in breach of prison regulations and of the Public Service Management Code.

“Division 18 if for privileged inmates”

Sources close to this newsroom said that Dalli created Division 18 dedicated to those inmates ‘close’ to the CCF Director. According to the sources, there are currently 4 inmates in this division and no officials are assigned at this division. Also, Division 18 replaced a playroom and a rest room used by inmates to see their children during visiting hours under the supervision of Aġenzija Appoġġ.

The sources told Newsbook.com.mt that while inmates such as Fenech has the privilege to walk around with the CCF Director and goes for swims, other inmates are treated differently especially foreigners, such as Daniel Muka, accused of killing Christian Pandolfino and Igor Micjoweski, who was taken to Division 6 in a separate room, alone.
